Wound repairs and general elective surgeries performed include: castrations, tumor removals, umbilical hernia repairs, posterior digital neurectomies, eyelid repair, enucleations (eye removal), periosteal transection, fractured splint bone removal.

Excellent care and monitoring of post-operative patients is provided at NPEC for our own patients as well as patients discharged from referral surgical facilities.
